Prep Time


  1. Select SEAR/SAUTÉ on your Foodi and set to HI. Select START/STOP to begin. Allow to preheat for 5 minutes

  2. After 5 minutes, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the olive oil begins to simmer, add the tofu in batches (about 250g at a time) and season each batch with ½ teaspoon salt. Sear for about 2 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove to a separate bowl and cover to keep warm

  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pot along with onions, butternut squash, and salt to taste. Sauté for 2 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 30 seconds

  4. Select START/STOP to turn off SEAR/SAUTÉ, then add the coconut milk, fish sauce, peanut butter, and curry powder. Stir until the peanut butter has fully dissolved. Assemble the pressure lid, making sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position

  5. Select PRESSURE and set to HIGH. Set the time to 3 minutes and press the START/STOP button to begin

  6. While the sauce is cooking, stir together chopped peanuts and lime juice in a small bowl.

  7. When the pressure cooking is complete, carefully quick release the pressure by turning the pressure release valve to the VENT position. Carefully remove the lid when the unit has finished releasing pressure

  8. Add the cooked tofu to the pot with the sauce. Using a spoon, sprinkle peanut and lime mixture on top of tofu, spreading as evenly as possible

  9. Close the crisping lid. Select GRILL and set the time to 5 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin

  10. When cooking is complete, serve with rice of your preferred accompaniment and enjoy
